Earlier this year Hasbro gave a first look at the characters being introduced in Series 2 of Angry Birds Star Wars mystery bags. Each mystery bag includes two miniatures, including characters like Han Solo, Princess Leia and Boba Fett.

Reports came in a few months ago that Series 2 had popped up overseas. These items have finally made their way to the U.S. I’ve been checking the toy aisle at retail stores and finally saw the new mystery bags appear at my local Target.

We’re still waiting for reports on the larger Boba Fett Power Battler, including a Han Solo target, to be spotted at local retail outlets.

Very good points, DarkOne. Thanks for pointing that out!

Back in February, we announced the Boba Fett table within the Star Wars Pinball game. The standalone game, Star Wars Pinball, includes the Star Wars Episode V, Boba Fett and Clone Wars tables we've seen before.

While it's a standalone application from the Apple App Store and Google Play, it's currently downloadable content within these games:

  • Pinball FX2™ on Xbox LIVE® Arcade

  • Zen Pinball 2™ on PlayStation®Network for PlayStation 3 & PlayStation Vita with Cross Buy entitlement! Purchase once and play on both systems!

  • Zen Pinball 2 on the Mac®App Store

  • Zen Pinball on the Apple® App Store

  • Zen Pinball HD Google Play™

Joystiq has more details:

Players can choose to contribute their high scores to either the Galactic Empire or Rebel Alliance, with the game's interface changing dynamically depending on the global balance of power. The game will be Cross-Buy enabled at $9.99/€9.99, though anyone who already owns these tables in Zen Pinball 2 can download the new solo app for free. Likewise, anyone that purchases Star Wars Pinball will unlock the equivalent tables in Zen Pinball 2.

Don't miss the hint for the Boba Fett game released on the Zen Studios blog post:

Assist Boba Fett in completing two sets of bounties, or table missions, in an effort to gain RESPECT and secure his spot as the most badass bounty hunter in the galaxy. To activate the Galactic Empire bounties, spell out the word EMPIRE by shooting the middle-left orbit. Activate the HUTTS bounties by shooting the sinkhole under the seesaw ramp. Just watch out for the Sarlacc pit!

A recent article commemmorating the 30th anniversary of "Return of the Jedi" has a quote that six different stuntmen played Boba Fett:

Six different stuntmen in America played the infamous bounty hunter Boba Fett falling to his death in the Sarlacc Pit

I've never heard of this before. Six actors, yes, but not different stuntmen.

We followed up with the journalist, who declined to comment.

Looking further into this trivia, according to starwarsaficionado.com, there's an excerpt about a second stuntman besides Dickey Beer, who has been on the convention circuit (and Entertainment Weekly):

In particular, we finally put to bed the information presented over the years that Jeremy Bulloch played Boba Fett on location at Yuma. He didn’t-all of his filming was studio bound, done within a three to four week period at the beginning of 1982 at ELSTREE on the Jabba’s Palace stage. Simply put, as Fett’s scenes on location were all stunt work, it would not have made practical, or budgetary, sense to send the actor out to Yuma when all of his work would have been handled by a stunt man. In this instance, Fett was doubled by two stunt men, one of which was Glenn Randall (location filming footage of him exists, wearing almost Elvis-like sideburns!!, getting ready in costume to film his scenes).

Returning to Fett, Beer joined Glenn Randall in Stunt Double work for the Bounty Hunter in Yuma (Glenn, being the USA location Stunt Coordinator, particularly wanting him to do some of the stunts), with Beer doing the scene of Boba flying from the skiff into the barge. When Boba Fett crashes into the barge and falls into the Sarlacc, and a view of the other shots, that’s also Dickey.

Anyone have any more sources or thoughts on this?

Freehand Profit, an artist/illustrator/designer based in Los Angeles, used two Nike Boba Fett shoes to make a  very creative Boba Fett helmet.

Excerpt from the announcement:

I had given up finding pairs of the ‘Boba Fett’ Nike SB Dunk HIs from 2008- it seemed like no one was selling them. I assumed no one in their right mind would give up such a great piece of SB Gold… then a pair appeared… and at a price I didn’t even flinch at. I realized with all the hype and the market flooded with newbies after ‘nothing but HEAT’, some folks gave up selling shoes that weren’t South Beach Lebrons, Tiffany SBs or Jordan Retros. I was lucky and ecstatic to find 4 pairs from great folks all across the country – some by trade some by cold cash money. I set 2 aside for the mask, and a wishful thinking 2 for me. Anytime I start a big project like the Stormtrooper or Boba Fett helmets I know I’ll need more material than a “standard” sneaker gas mask. I aim to do each piece with as few pairs as possible to avoid waste, for the Boba Fett helmet it could’ve been done with just 2 pairs. I saw more potential in sacrificing a 3rd pair for the sake of certain design elements in the finished piece. Very happy with the results, and just as happy with a single pair in my rotation.

The artwork is for sale.

As you may know, "The Clone Wars" appears to be all done. No new episodes are planned.

Any thoughts on next steps for the Boba Fett storyline they started? What could have happened next?

Indeed -- and spot-on with Vader, Emperor, etc.

Nice observations, Revan.

But isn't all of what you describe a good vs. evil debate, regardless of politics?

I don't see how right- or left-wing personal, financial, or other values -- in terms of U.S. terminology of right vs. left -- are in the film as so much as a dictatorship, which is FAR right.

Hey Wes, welcome to the boards! Glad to have you here.

As you can see in the "Creative" forum here, we have held many RPGs, so some members are familiar already.

How about getting the ball rolling with a storyline (and any requirements) and others will likely join along here too?

Welcome to the boards, rdcarter! Thanks for the shout-out here!

Jeremy Bulloch does indeed live in England, but he travels all around the world all the time, including near Tennessee. We track his events here:

Hi kevin_147! We're on Facebook.

Wow, Ozzy17, thanks for sharing that list! Got to make sure I update a few of these on http://bobafett.com/bounty/ !

Very cool idea, Kensoneny! Nice job on the watch! Would you stop at watches and phone cases, or go as far as Kitchenaid mixers like this:

Wow, Ozzy17, that is an amazing collection! Do you have a list of each one somewhere? It looks like a LOT of variants, too!

Wow! Does it really say "Darth Vader" on the stand? That's got to be worth something more, since it's clearly an error!

Thanks for posting! Knowing this era of collectibles, I'd say it's neither common nor rare. It might be worth a little more than what you paid for it. There are several other bobble-style figures and I believe this version was more widely available than others.

Hi SintasVel11! All set with adding that avatar here for you.

Welcome Fantasy Liver! Click on "Profile" or your username on the left here, then "Avatar," and then find/create/upload a 100x100 JPG/GIF image, which then becomes your avatar here on the site.

Let this be a thread on all things preliminary for the spin-off film, which is not considered Star Wars Episode 7, but is a live-action feature film for theaters nonetheless.

In the 2/9/2013 Los Angeles Times, ESB/ROTJ writer Lawrence Kasdan, who's also an accomplished writer/director for other films, has an article by Noelene Clark (@NoeleneClark):

Kasdan would not confirm reports that the spinoff films would center on iconic characters Han Solo, Boba Fett or Yoda, but said he wasn’t focusing on his previous scripts or on the extended “Star Wars” universe in his approach to writing the new film.

“I’m trying to start fresh,” he said. “There are certain pleasures that we think the saga can bring to people that they’ve been missing, and we’re hoping to bring them that, and at the same time, have them feel that it’s all new.”

Vheh, excellent topic! Thanks for starting this!

Since Jango was introduced as "another" Fett, I think "the" Fett would mean Boba Fett.

Otherwise, "the" Fett could be just a casual reference. For example, in the TV show "Family Guy:"

No matter what the stakes are, I never risk the Fett guy.
